When it comes to homes, the kitchen and the bathroom are probably the most talked about and thought about rooms in the house. If you are staying in your home, these are the first two rooms you are more than likely to remodel. If you are selling, these are also the top two on the list for change and upgrade.

The bathroom however, should get the most attention. There’s a lot of activity in a teeny tiny space. It’s where you take care of business, put on your makeup, shower, shave and even brush your teeth. The problem with traditional bathrooms, however, is that they are not situated properly and are probably the most poorly designed as well. Here are several ways you can make your way to a healthier and safer bathroom.

Get a Bidet for Your Bathroom

Whether you are doing a complete remodel or just looking to tidy things up a bit, a bidet is a great idea. European countries have used them for a very long time and for good reason. It’s a great way to keep clean after using the facilities and to keep your bathroom that much cleaner. If you’re not up for a total bathroom remodel, then why not consider an add on sprayer to do the trick?

Shut the Lid

You should always shut the lid when flushing. The action of flushing creates a spray of germs and toxins that is sent out into the surrounding area. If you are like most people, your toothbrush is hanging around somewhere in the bathroom. You don’t want to think about what you are spraying into the air when you flush with the lid open.

The Right Way to Wash Your Hands

We have all heard of the benefits of hand washing to avoid the common cold and other viruses, as well. However, there’s no better way to keep clean and sanitary than to add a toilet tank tap kit to wash your hands before you touch anything else. These kits are easy enough to install and you can wash your hands before you touch anything else in the bathroom.

Double Duty

When it comes to being green, one of the best and safest ways is to take a look at the chemicals you are using. Choose environmentally safe products, and use a toilet brush to do the heavy scrubbing so you don’t have to rely on heavy duty chemicals. Additionally, you can install a dual flush toilet system. You can choose to use a half flush or a full flush on every go.

Use Grab Bars

When it comes to safety, there’s no better way to be safe than to install grab bars. These grab bars will come in handy regardless of your age. The bathroom is the number one area in homes for accidents and slip and falls. Installing and using grab bars just makes sense.

With these five basic and simple solutions, you can have a healthier and safer bathroom in no time.
